Obii Say - Hey, I Remember You

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
J Dilla
Album:
Donuts for the Villagers

It takes a brave rapper to introduce himself to the Booth with a freestyle over a J. Dilla beat—let alone one as classic as the one that backed Slum Village‘s Fall in Love. That, however, is exactly what D.C. spitter Obii Say does on Hey, I Remember You, the inaugural leak off his forthcoming street release. Has the up-and-comer succeeded in doing the original justice? If so, keep it locked for the latest on Say’s Dilla-inspired Donuts for the Villagers project, which has yet to receive a solid drop date.
